Forester was a self-contained sawmill town owned by the Caddo River Lumber Company. It was founded and built by Thomas Whitaker Rosborough in 1930 in southeastern Scott County. In 1952, the mill closed, and the whole town was moved or torn down. The Forester Historical Society has maintained a reunion park, which can be seen behind company ruins, at the log pond since 1983. The nine-acre recreational park is the result of work being done by various organizations, volunteer workers, the Forester Historical Society, and former residents.
